Young Artist competition

The Dakota Valley Symphony is encouraging instrumentalists and vocalists in grades 7-12 to enter its Young Artist Concerto/Aria Competition. The entry deadline is Dec. 29 for the Jan. 12 competition, which will be held at Schmitt Music in Southdale Square.

Students must memorize music from a list of qualifying pieces, posted at DakotaValleySymphony.org, and then bring an accompanist and perform it during the tryout. The winning musician will have an opportunity to play with the Dakota Valley Symphony at its spring concert on April 28, 2013.
